Summary, etc.: In 1933, as her husband assumed the presidency, Eleanor Roosevelt embarked on the claustrophobic, duty-bound existence of the First Lady with dread. Putting her deep disappointment in her marriage behind her, she had developed an independent life which was threatened by her new public role. A lifeline came to her in the form of a feisty campaign reporter for the Associated Press, Lorena Hickok. Over the next thirty years, until Eleanor's death, the two women were, at different points, lovers, confidantes, professional advisors, and caring friends. Quinn provides a revealing look at how an unlikely romance influenced some of the most consequential years in American history.
